A lawsuit was filed on Wednesday 1 Cheshvan 5773 in the Lod District Court on behalf of Rachel Atias, the lone survivor of her family, killed in a vehicular crash near Tiveria.
According to a Yediot Achronot report, attorney David Ohr-Chen is representing Rachel, filing a lawsuit against the ‘שומרה’ insurance company in the amount of 13 million NIS.
Since the fatal accident, Rachel moved in with her aunt in Tzfas. Her attorney explains “she will suffer her entire life” as a result of the accident, hence the lawsuit, which he explains will finance her ongoing therapy and permit her to hopefully one day have a normal life.
Killed in the crash in Tiveria were Rabbi Rafael Atias, 42, principal of a Tzfat yeshiva, his wife Yehudit, 42, Avia (female-17), a student in a Meron ulpana (high school), twins Elyashiv and Neria Shimon (16), Shira (11), Ta’ir (girl-8) and Noah (girl – 4).
